Mormon Underwear
Many devoted adult members of the Mormon Church wear a special underwear known as the "garment." The garment is a symbolic expression of promises made to God in the temple. To learn more, read the full article on "Mormon Underwear."

Mormon Baptism for the Dead

Mormon.org
Ask any question you have about the Mormon Church at the official Mormon Web site, mormon.org. Major topics include the Church's beliefs about families, the purpose of life, and the nature of God. You can also watch Mormon videos that explain the gospel.
"We know that Elijah did return—at least twice—after Malachi's promise. At Christ's transfiguration, Elijah appeared on the mount to Peter, James, and John. At the Kirtland Temple, April 3, 1836, Elijah appeared to the Prophet and Oliver Cowdery and said, 'The keys of this dispensation are committed into your hands.'"
—Russell M. Nelson
